COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This English style of beer, also known as Sweet Stout or Cream Stout, first appeared in London in the late 1800’s. The early brewers touted the health benefits of the milk sugar in this beer which today relates mainly to the increased amount of calories(no real health benefits…sorry). The milk sugar adds a well rounded sweetness to this dark beer and makes it an outstanding, year ‘round stout.

Pours a dark opaque brown color with a tan head. Has a nice hint of chocolate, and lactose taste like milk in the back of your throat. Has a sweet finish on the palate.

Aoma was of roastiness and chocolate with some sweetness to back it up. Flavor aws really sweet with some bittersweet chocolate. This wasnt bad but there was nothing special about it.

Darker brown color with a sugary aroma. The mouthfeel was very watery with an unpleasant taste that reminded me of spoilt milk. Not a fun beer.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2008 Sweet aroma, with notes of coffee and roasted malts. Appearance is a dark brown/red, slight head. The flavor has a chocolate coffe taste, with definite notes of lactose from the milk. This milk sugar adds a slightly sour taste to the overall sweetness. Mouthfeel is a little thick, and the finish is long lasting. Overall a decent stout.

The aroma was deep chocolate and a fruity coffee presence. The aroma was toasty and roasty and contained a light sweetness and a touch of slight tart acidity. The beer poured into the glass black with a brown lasting head which hung around to lace the glass. The flavor was malty with a strong dark chocolate and espresso coffee presence. The flavor was not nearly as estery as the aroma, but still had a light bit of tart acidity from grains. The flavor was roasty, toasty and smooth. The body was medium or just a smidge above and with a moderate level of carbonation exhibited a creamy character in the mouthfeel. The finish was just dry with lasting espresso coffee and chocolate long into the aftertaste. This really is a great milk stout! 12 ounce bottle.

Boutip (4726) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 21, 2007
Bottle courtesy of Shp555: Poured a medium black color stout with a medium foamy head with better then average retention. Aroma of light roasted malt with some coffee. Taste is also dominated by some coffee malt with a good lactose feel also noticeable. The creamy texture was very interesting with a nice full body. I thought this beer was well balance between roasted coffee malt and the creamy lactose aspect of it.

Hangover (1058) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - MAR 20, 2007
Dark pour with a thin tan head. Sweet and intense chocolate aroma with barely discernable roasty notes. Medium-bodied with medium carbonation. A lot more coffee comes out towards the middle. Mouthfeel takes on some creaminess and the finish is sweet but not cloying. Nice roasted malt, slightly bitter finish. Pretty good.

A milk stout with a sweet smell, a shy roasty character, and a very watery mouthfeel. Not best of style. Appearance is a dark brown with some red with lots of fluffy head composed of large bubbles. Aroma is slightly sweet, like a latte. But none of that aroma is forwarded into the taste, which is a bit of dark roastiness covered with a lot of wateriness. Mouthfeel is watery, and I don’t find this beer to be highly drinkable. I’m not planning on having this again...it’s not bad, but there are too many other great beers in our wonderful world to spend much time with this one.
